About Aaron Crider

Concord, NC

From leading worship at his church at 13 years old to recording with Rita Springer and Jason Upton. Aaron Crider is no newcomer to the music and worship scene
Aaron's musical aspirations began in the second grade. After receiving a Yamaha keyboard for Christmas, Aaron began a journey that would prepare him for a successful future in music
In 1996, while visiting a church in Pensacola, Florida, Aaron was deeply touched by God. This was a significant turning point in his life, both in his Christian walk and in receiving direction for his future. A couple of weeks later, while at the altar of his home church, God spoke to Aaron's heart. The Lord spoke to him that He was calling him to be a worshipper, who would lead others before God’s throne, rather than pursuing a career as a pop star. It was with this fresh fire and call on his heart that Aaron began attending Bible College. Upon graduating and receiving a Bachelors Degree in practical ministry and worship, he immediately joined the faculty of F.I.R.E. School of Ministry as music director
Since then Aaron has traveled throughout the United States and overseas in Asia, Europe, and South America. Aaron uses his music to lead people in worship, teach in conferences and seminars, and record worship albums.
A highlight for Aaron came in 2002, when he was invited to be involved with the "The Call, New York City,” where 100,000+ would gather and pray for revival
Aaron can be seen regularly leading worship with the likes of Rita Springer, Jason Upton, and Leonard Jones. Jason Upton recently had Aaron lay some background vocals for him on his new "Beautiful People" record and has this to say about Aaron's musi

"Aaron's music is very kingdom focused. It exposes people to the majesty of God and His kingdom". Jason Upto

Aaron is also currently recording a new live worship album due out in July entitled "Aaron Crider Live" with Rita Springer and Leonard Jones. Rita leads Aaron's song "He Shall Be Called" and it's sure to be a favorite track on the record
Aaron is also a Mission Of Mercy recording artist; Other M of M artists include: Sarah Kelly and Kevin Max (DC Talk). Mission of Mercy is a Christian based humanitarian organization helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of children in poverty-stricken areas of the world
In 2006 Aaron signed with Dville Records who is partnered with Word Distribution and Springhill Media. Aaron connected with producer Kevan Cyka and Musicians Mark Hill (Stevan Curtis Chapman, FFH) Dan Needham (Michael W. Smith, Rebecca St. James, and Point of Grace) and George Cocchini (Michael W. Smith, Steven Curtis Chapman, DC Talk) to record the studio worship album “Phenomenon”. Aaron began pre-release sales on stage with SONICFLOOD last year in Ralaigh NC and the record is set to be released this summer
Aaron's vision is to, first, be the kind of worshipper that the Father seeks according to John 4:23-24 and, second, lead others to become true worshippers themselves, rather than just those who participate in song services. It's with this passion and vision that Aaron continues to write, record, and play wherever the doors are open. Aaron currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with his beautiful wife, Holly, and three children Emma, Aliya, and Samuel
